WHAT TO WEAR: Birthday Party

What to Wear

A birthday party is always a colorful event to attend. From pastel-colored cupcake frosting to glittery confetti, birthday decorations never shy away from the colorful and the bold. While some Fashionistas may prefer to maintain their classic looks when going to a birthday party, this Fashionista certainly did not shy away from the bold and the bright. Donning vibrant colors and striking accessories, this Fashionista looked outrageous, bold and colorful in her festive outfit.

To start off, this Fashionsita wore a pair of classic dark wash mid-skinny jeans. The “dark vintage” wash of her J Brand jeans added a darker, more neutral color to her otherwise bright, patterned outfit. It importantly grounded the outfit and provided a darker contrast for her pink top.

On top, she remained colorful with a patterned top like this Missoni T-shirt with red and silver thread. The shirt certainly added a splash of color and pattern to her outfit, which was appropriate for a colorful event like a birthday party.

To maintain her festive, feminine and playful look, this Fashionista wore a purple beaded necklace and pink “Standout Feather Earrings” from Forever 21.

One Simple Change:  Less can definitely be more when opting for a less festive look. For a more subdued outfit that would be perfect for running errands,  simply remove the jewelry and wedges. Instead, wear nude leather sandals, like these from Sam Edelman, for a more daytime appropriate look. The neutral leather will elongate your legs and maintain your colorful look, while allowing you to easily run errands around town.
